PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PLANS

Sectional Steel Doors

WHY IS A MAINTENANCE PLAN FOR OVERHEAD-DOORS SO IMPORTANT?

The Overhead Door Company strongly recommends a regularly scheduled preventative maintenance plan for commercial overhead doors.  Our preventative maintenance plans improves operational efficiency, safety, and reliability.  Overhead Door preventative maintenance not only decreases costly downtime by preventing some types of industrial door malfunctions, it can also decrease repair expenses over the long term.  Scheduling commercial doors maintenance regularly reduces the need for emergency repairs to overhead doors.  

WHAT DOES PREVENTATIVE PLAN ENTAIL?

Preventative maintenance is focused on keeping your overhead doors in peak condition at all times, instead of only performing maintenance in response to a needed repair.  Among other things, preventative maintenance includes keeping the track surfaces of the overhead door clean and free of obstructions, grease, and oil, making certain bolts and fasteners are correctly tightened, and addressing any damage or wear and tear which has occurred over time. The door surface and hardware should also be checked on a regular basis, to maintain the functionality of the roller assembly, bottom seal, hinge points, and other elements.  The counterbalance should also be examined periodically to ensure that the drum, cable, torsion spring, shaft bearings, set screws, and collars are working as intended.  Some elements may need periodic lubrication, while others may need tightness adjustments or replacement due to corrosion. 

WHY SCHEDULE PROFESSIONAL PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE?

Overhead doors include a number of elements which can be under high spring tension, including bottom fixtures, cables, drums, pulleys, shafts, and brackets and only a trained service person should attempt repairs to these items.  Winding, repairs, and spring adjustments must also be completed by trained service professionals. In addition to these repairs and adjustments which can only be completed by trained professionals, it’s also wise to have a professional technician perform regular preventative maintenance because professional technicians have extensive experience in identifying the potential for problems before they have a chance to occur. 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE BE SCHEDULED?

The frequency with which a customer schedules service technicians to perform preventative maintenance on their industrial doors or other equipment will vary according to the climate and other conditions under which the door regularly operates.  Some preventative maintenance may be required monthly, while other types of maintenance should be undertaken every three to six months. To determine the best preventative maintenance schedule for your overhead doors or loading dock equipment contact The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC for a consultation.

How a Fire Door Protects You

So, why do you need a fire door? A fire door is designed to slow the spread of both, smoke and fire, from one part of your building to another. This can give you occupants of the building a chance to escape, and may also protect valuable equipment or merchandise from damage during a small fire. A fire door is superior to a standard door in protecting because it is made of multiple layers and is both, self-closing and self-sealing, in case of emergency.

Commercial Overhead Doors

Commercial Overhead Doors

commercial door
Preventative maintenance — that is something you utilize for your car, home and even your body! When it comes to your business, there is another area you should consider maintaining preventatively—your commercial overhead doors and other security doors.

Whether you have aluminum doors, rolling steel doors, sectional steel doors or another form of commercial door, properly maintaining your commercial door can have some major benefits. Consider these three reasons why servicing commercial doors before they actually break just makes sense:

1. Financial Benefits
If you use your high speed doors or other commercial doors daily and do not keep them properly maintained, you can have some unexpected and costly repairs. By having your doors inspected and serviced regularly, you can spot problems before they start. Properly lubricating and making adjustments will save you money. Replacement parts are often more affordable when you buy them ahead of time too.

2. Safety First
High-performance commercial doors
have many moving parts that wear out and break over time. When these parts are broken, they can become noisy, hard to use and could even cause injuries. In the worst cases hinges can break and cables snap which could cause major property damage or even hurt you or your staff. Looking into commercial doors maintenance ahead of time can prevent this.

3. Keep Your Business Up and Running
You want to keep your business running on a day-to-day basis. If you have broken fire-rated doors, security grilles, counter doors or other parts, you could run into problems that make you shut down. Missed days at work are bad for business. By making an appointment with Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC, you can avoid these closures and keep your business running smoothly.

High-Performance Doors

Posted by Elizabeth Aceves on Sat, Apr 06, 2013 @ 01:52 AM

Rapidslat High Performance Doors

At Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC, one of the biggest concerns we hear from our clients regards the security of commercial and industrial doors. They worry that traditional style doors do not offer the best protection possible, nor do they meet their business location needs. In this case, we often recommend RapidSlat Advanced Service Doors.

The RapidSlat system was also created to handle a wide variety of commercial situations. These high-performance doors open up to three times faster than traditional rolling steel doors. In addition, they also provide higher durability and security than fabric doors. They are also easier to install and easier to troubleshoot due to the variety of insulation, weather seal, and wind load options available when selecting the perfect door for your business location.

The Overhead Door Power Guard Finish also provides enduring performance to help maximize the life cycle of your door system. A reliable spring less operation design also eliminates the need for counterbalance, making your rolling door system safer and less bulky than other model types.

For areas with high traffic (such as employees and equipment) the RapidSlat Advanced Rolling Door also includes a variety of safety features, including a built-in variable frequency drive that allows the door to close much more slowly than it opens. A safety sensing edge also opens the door the moment it senses contact with an item or person while in the process of closing.

In essence, RapidSlat Advanced Rolling Service Doors are like having two doors in one! Their safety, security, and range of use is unparalleled.
